advantages, disadvantages, and recommended use:
1. WD Blue 4TB Model WD40EZRZ
2. WD Blue SSHD 4TB Model WD40E31X
3. WD Black 4TB Model WD4003FZEX
4. WD Re 4TB Model WD4000FYYZ

Need to compare in detail there specification such as spin rate,cache,capacity and elaborate if one of the models has a unique feature of the other model for eg. If one model has a higher spin rate explain to me what this means in terms of hard drive performance?thumb.gif. I've been looking for ages all i can really find is just the basic specifications of each hard drive ?? I need to know the differences and compare between the 3 if anyone can help? redface.gif

Western digital's website has detailed specs for each of the drives.

1. WD Blue 4TB Model WD40EZRZ
2. WD Blue SSHD 4TB Model WD40E31X
3. WD Black 4TB Model WD4003FZEX
4. WD Re 4TB Model WD4000FYYZ

1. Standard basic model with the lowest speed, durability and warranty, also the cheapest

2. For when you cant afford an SSD as your boot drive but otherwise the same as 1.

3. Faster than 1, more expansive than 1 with a slightly better warranty (I think)

4. Probably not any faster than 1 but is more durable and rated for 24/7 use, longer warranty

But all this stuff is on Western Digital's website, just saying.

You are close:

1. Standard basic model with the lowest speed, durability and warranty, also the cheapest

This a basic storage drive. The 7200 rpm models are faster than the 5400 rpm models. The 5400 rpm models use a bit less power than the 7200 rpm models and will be slower. Warranty is two years. I use the predecessor to the 5400 rpm Blues, the Greens, for my backup drives since they cost less and are in service only an average of a few minutes a day while updating backups (the rest of the time, the are stored in a drawer).


2. For when you cant afford an SSD as your boot drive but otherwise the same as 1.

This is an HDD with a small SSD cache (typically 8GB). Some people may get a slight performance increase but most do not, especially when used for storage only. The prices of SSDs have dropped enough that there is no real advantage to an SSHD.


3. Faster than 1, more expansive than 1 with a slightly better warranty (I think)

It has a much better warranty than 1; five years. This the drive I use for storage in my desktop machine since I run it 24/7. It's increased reliability and speed and longer warranty make it well worth the extra expense.


4. Probably not any faster than 1 but is more durable and rated for 24/7 use, longer warranty

The Reds are intended for use in RAID. They tend to get poorer reviews than the Blues and Blacks. I do not recommend them.
